Can I Claim Dermal Filler Treatment Compensation?
If you are coping with the effects of dermal filler injections that have gone wrong, we understand the importance of ensuring the situation is resolved as quickly as possible. All medical professionals have a duty of care that they must maintain to ensure their patients' safety and well-being. Any cosmetic procedures conducted in the UK must, by law, meet the standards set by the government.
Cosmetic surgeons' legal responsibilities include:
- Managing any potential risk factors that could be classed as ‘reasonably preventable’
- Providing patients with information about any complications that could be unpreventable, allowing the patient to give informed consent
If you feel that your clinic has not fulfilled this duty of care, you may be entitled to claim compensation. However, you will not be eligible to claim compensation for dermal filler treatments if you are unhappy with the results, only if you can prove that you suffered physical pain, trauma or a loss of earnings directly because of your surgeon's negligence.

What are the Signs My Dermal Filler Procedure Has Gone Wrong?
Cosmetic surgeons are increasingly called upon to deal with problems that arise from injectable face fillers. In a report by the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), more than two-thirds of cosmetic surgeons said they had seen failed dermal fillers in patients.
These problems are often caused by a clinical failure to inject the filler deep enough, or unproven substances being used by unqualified practitioners - both of which are examples of negligent dermal filler treatment. In the same BAAPS study, it was reported that 84% of dermal filler injuries the surgeons encountered either required corrective surgery or were untreatable.
Your surgeon should have warned you about these risks - if they did not, this may be cause for concern about their reliability.
Negligent dermal filler treatment can result in a variety of symptoms, including:
- Localised swellings
- Artery occlusion
- Nerve damage
- Vision loss
- Mismanagement of infection and necrosis
If you experience any of these symptoms, speak to your surgeon or GP as soon as possible.
How Long Does the Claims Process Take?
No two cases we handle are the same, which means that the timescales involved can vary considerably. We can guarantee that your dedicated solicitor will be there to support you every step of the way. It is important to start your claim as soon as possible following the negligent procedure to ensure you receive the best chance of success.
Is There a Time Limit On Making a Dermal Filler Claim?
In the majority of cases, you have three years from the date of the dermal filler procedure to make a claim for compensation. However, there are some exceptions to this rule; if the patient lacks the mental capacity to bring the claim forward themselves, they will not be subject to the time limit unless they cover this mental capacity. Those who have undergone the process under the age of 18 will only be subject to the time limit when they turn 18.
Regardless of the time limit that applies to your situation, dermal filler injury claims that are brought forward quickly will have more time for your solicitor to gather evidence and build your case, therefore having a higher likelihood of success.

FAQs About Dermal Filler Compensation Claims
What will happen when I make a dermal filler claim?
When you call us, we will discuss your situation in a no-obligations consultation, during which we will aim to understand your injuries and how they occurred. We will inform you as to whether you are eligible to make a compensation claim, how much you may be able to claim and what you will need to do next.
From here, we will work with you to gather evidence about your dermal filler injury. This evidence may include photos of your injury, medical reports, witness statements and financial reports.
Once we have built a strong argument as to why you deserve dermal filler compensation, we will approach the other party and inform them that a claim is being made against them. We will try to negotiate this with them, but they may dispute the claim, in which case court proceedings will become necessary. In such an event, we will represent you in court.
What can I use my dermal filler compensation award for?
Compensation is awarded for the physical and mental suffering and the financial losses incurred as a direct result of the negligent surgery. Your compensation amount is calculated with these in mind, aiming to cover any care and support you need, and your lost finances. Your legal fees will also be included in this amount, so you will not have to worry about paying these separately.
Can I make a no win, no fee dermal filler compensation claim?
All of Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors' compensation claims are no win, no fee, meaning any claim you make with us will have minimal financial risk to you.
